Inspired by her brother, David’s, (a 2008 Walsh Jesuit graduate) fight against lymphoma, Bethie Stein ’12 started the “WJ Fights Cancer Week” last year, which raised more than $11,000 for the American Cancer Society. Funds were raised through a series of sponsors and student activities, all while raising awareness about cancer and its impact on families.

This year, the “WJ Fights Cancer Week” will be held February 27- March 4, 2012. The week will conclude with a Mass on March 4, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. in the Walsh Jesuit Chapel, followed by breakfast catered by Moe’s Restaurant, and guest speaker Mr. Jim Donovan of WKYC Channel 3. Donovan will speak about his battle with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia. The event is open to the public, and all proceeds from the event will benefit the American Cancer Society. Attendees also have the opportunity to make a donation to the Be the Match® National Marrow Donor Program and become a bone marrow donor during the event. The cost is $10/person or $20 a family. Anyone interested in attending, please RSVP by March 1, 2012 by visiting www.walshjesuit.org. Find Walsh Jesuit Communion Breakfast on the front page. To make reservations over the phone, or for any questions, please call 330.929.4205 ext. 170.
